DIY Rustic Kitchen Peninsula: A Joanna Gaines Inspired Kitchen Copycat


Happy Monday!  

I painted my kitchen cabinets last year with homemade chalk paint, and have never really loved the way the backside of the peninsula looked.  It's a huge white elephant in the room.  It's the first thing you see when you enter the back door and it's nearly eye level from the family when you have a seat!  Normal people could care less about stuff like that, but it bothered me..bad.  

Even with stools in front of it, it looks out of place.  I had plans of adding reclaimed wood but decided against it, then I fell for Chip and Joanna's reclaimed church alter island, but I have a peninsula in my kitchen not an island (and no access to reclaimed church parts).  

So I faked it.

2017 Mission: Declutter

This month I've been following Laura @ theturquoisehome.com and trying to keep up with her  30 Days to Less of a Hot Mess Challenge.  I will admit I feel like I'm making some headway here and can't wait to say, "it's done!"  
Check it out here, it's not too late to start!
